Exclusive: Owl, Led by The Cult Bassist Chris Wyse, Premiere Cover of The Kinks’ “Destroyer”

Los Angeles-based rock band Owl–featuring The Cult bassist Chris Wyse on vocals and bass, as well as drummer Dan Dinsmore and guitarist-vocalist Jason Achilles Mezilis–-is set to unleash its new album, The Right Thing, on April 9 via Overit Records. In anticipation, the group is premiering a new track right here right now: a cover of The Kinks classic “Destroyer.”

“‘Destroyer’ is such a great classic and The Kinks were always a favorite,” Wyse says. “Covering the song was an instant fit for Owl–we took a really fun song and put our own stamp on it. We liked the way it turned out so much that we made it the opening track on The Right Thing.”

Check the cover out below, and let us know what you think in the comments.
